Outstanding Cooler

by
I bought the RTIC 20 shortly after they were introduced years ago to see if I liked the product before buying other sizes. I was extremely impressed with the quality and price. Since then I have purchased the 65 and 145. I use them for hunting, fishing and catering. No problem to fit a 120 lb pig in the 145 with ice. I highly recommend this product.

a good cooler

It's a real good cooler I love it

Great for hunting

by
These coolers are built like a tank. I have 2 145's for early season archery elk hunting. When the temps are really warm, these are a necessity to cool the meat down fast. With both coolers in the bed of my truck, I can fit a quartered bull elk easily. The hind quarters may have to be partially deboned since they are so long, but everything fits perfectly with plenty of ice. With this set up, I can change out frozen 2 liter bottles as needed and butcher the animal a little bit at a time over a week or so.

Solid cooler, great price

by
Spent a lot of time looking at the plenty of rotomolded coolers on the market because I was tired of having all of my stuff melt in the big box cheapo coolers. RTIC had an excellent price point and simple design, not too many parts that could fail. It’s held up well over the first few uses I’ve had. No surprise there, honestly. The only thing I would add to this cooler is some built in bottle opener, but it’s not a major inconvenience to carry and account for a separate one. Solid cooler overall, will consider getting a larger version if the need arises. Blue color is excellent.

rtic ruled

by
I buy the tumblers by the case to give to customers and decided i wanted a cooler. I was hesitant to spend the $$$ at 1st but glad I did. The amount i will save on ice in a year will pay for the cooler easily!!

Must Buy

by
The 110 is a great cooler and just as advertised! Got mine a little over a month ago and love it! It’s a beast and it’s harder keeping drinks in it than ice as good as it works. If you’re looking for a great cooler at an even greater price, look no further

YES

Using it as I write this. Bought the 65 for vaca. Initially was planning on purchasing ‘the other brand’, then did some homework. Good choice! Pre-chilled it slightly with ice packs. Obviously just enough to chill. Packed it up night before leaving (Friday nite, leaving Saturday morn) with the promise of it holding the ice longer than an ordinary ice chest. Traveled to NC Beach 12 hrs. packed with multiple items (frozen hamburgers and drinks for the road, eggs on top, etc. I did not add a ton of ice either.) Opening it up occasionally for a soda along the way. Didn’t unpack it til Sunday nite. So that was 2 whole days. Burgers were ever so slightly thawed and the ice that had melted around the burger packs froze them together. I’d say it did it’s job! After unpacking, left the drinks in what ice and water was there, eventually emptying the water and adding more ice. Using it to keep drinks in as to cluttering fridge. It has impressed us enough to order the 45, and a soft 20 for work. Can’t wait to see how well the soft cooler works. Before ordering: FYI.... Keep in mind, the amount of room you have in your vehicle. And it is slightly heavy empty. You do Need 2 people to lift it around. For these reasons we are purchasing the smaller one too. Highly recommend.

Quality, Value, Performance

by
Just purchased my second RTIC hard cooler. Plan to use the 20 for in car travel use for our long drives while the 65 is used to pack perishables. RTIC coolers simply can not be beat for overall quality, and this product represents the absolute best in terms of value for money spent. I am simply astounded by the performance of RTIC coolers in terms of ice retention. Don't waste your hard earned money with other more costly brands.

6 days a week

by
I use this cooler for a landscaping job. It's it's in the back of the truck with a black bed liner. I live and work in Eastern Washington and even in the 90s only using inexpensive blue ice packs with no real ice it does an excellent job of keeping my grub cold. THANKS RTIC

Best cooler

LOVE RTIC

by
I have the tan 65 and the seafoam 20. The 65 is great for long roadtrips. In the hot car in Texas summer heat, my ice lasted over 48 hours, just needing to be topped off every other day. I use the 20 for day trips and for carrying around at events. I bought my sister the tote, she is a mom and 3rd grade teacher and she loves it. Mom's and teacher carry a lot of stuff and it's the first bag big enough and tough enough to hold all of her stuff.

Great Cooler

I love my 45, great cooler! Thinking about buying a 65!!! Wish there was a dark gray 65 on wheels with a handle!!!

1st test

by
First real test using this cooler. 3 day camping trip 2 bags of ice and a few frozen water bottles. Day 4 back home after opening and closing dozens of times plenty of ice left and the water bottles are still partly frozen. Well worth the money would of had to boat to the truck and drive 30+ miles for ice. Average temperature was 70-80 degrees.

Tough Cooler

by
Working out of a delivery truck this cooler had high expectations from the beginning. I keep it in the back where temperatures can get to/or above 130 degrees. It holds ice all day when its that hot and 3-4 days in the spring and fall. It gets beat up but holds it's own as I have had it years now and all still original hardware. It's a sturdy step when trying to get to higher places in the truck when needed as well. Took it on a week long vacation where it was 55-60 degrees and only had to add ice twice due to the fact we added room temperature drinks as needed all week. Solid cooler but before buying consider the fact this is good as a day cooler and if you need space you need a bigger cooler. Rtic has impressed me overall with this cooler and other drinkware, I'd recommend to anyone.

cooler

by
Not sure about the 10 days of holding ice but very well built cooler. Went on a 6 day trip to Tennessee on day 5 we did add ice after putting a case of warm bottled water in there was ice left but melted pretty fast after adding the water. It was under the tonneau cover in bed of pick up in 80 degree weather.

Hot or Cold

by
I have two of these and when we travel I use one to keep the drinks cold and one to keep the food hot. Both work great.

Best Hard Cooler

by
RTIC Hard Coolers are the best for the money spent. I've bought several for work and play. I have some color suggestions. Cream-Sickle - Light Orange outside, white inside. Key-Lime - Light Minty Green Outside, White Inside You should also have darker, night time, party coolers. Because your party is on the deck and you don't want your guests in and out of the fridge.. and you want to avoid putting drinks in your fish cooler. Dark Cherry Red Dark Forest Green Deep Royal Purple Deep Ocean Blue

Awesome Value

I bought my RTIC 45 2 years ago. It has been the best cooler I have ever owned. It will keep ice for days. Awesome product at an awesome price.
